Just received this offer

Good to go
You’re all set. Now you can earn up to 7,500 Starpoints® on eligible stays between May 1 and July 31, 2015.

Here’s how: You’ll earn 1,500 bonus Starpoints on your first stay, 2,500 on your second stay and 3,500 on your third stay. With 7,500 Starpoints, you can enjoy a free night at a Category 3 hotel, including the Sheraton Deira Hotel, Dubai.

Earning more Starpoints is that easy. Now comes the hard part: deciding where to stay. Choose from our more than 1,200 hotels and resorts in over 100 countries worldwide.

----

I had 2 stays already booked during May, a bit strange that I am targeted for this but I won't turn down an easy 7500 points!

Mine, received 10 minutes ago:

You’re all set. Now you can earn up to three Free Night Awards when you stay with us between May 1 and July 31, 2015.

Here’s how: You’ll get one Free Night Award on your first stay, another Free Night Award on your second stay, and yet another Free Night Award on your third stay.

That’s three Free Night Awards, which can be redeemed at your choice of our Category 1–5 hotels and resorts through November 30, 2015.

Now, where to stay? Choose from our more than 1,200 hotels and resorts in over 100 countries worldwide.
No exclusion list that I can find. I'll have three 1- or 2-night business stays that I can redirect over to Starwood during the promo period. Three Cat 5 nights is a pretty nice offer.

I got the same one, and will probably sway me to book at the W vs the Doubletree, a debate I'm having in my head for a wedding I'm going to next month in Atlanta.

I only have 1 paid SPG stay in recent memory (last one was probably 2013?) and it was last month. Wonder what the targeting criteria was.

As this is a new wave of targeted promotional activity (and, as has been speculated, in lieu of a Q2/3 promotion), I've split these posts out into a new thread.

I can't believe *Wood is not offering any promo to it's best customers (i.e., Plats). Why a chain would ignore us is beyond me and has already resulted in 35 nights being shifted to Hilton (in my case). I'm actually starting to get used to their product and benefits. SPG you are playing with fire and over a modest amount of points risk losing and alienating your best customers.

Nada for me.

I'm at an Element tonight, then Aloft, then Four Points, so perhaps the Starwood 'super computer' thinks I am not worthy of any targeted promotions.

That's fine, I will switch to Marriott and Hilton for a few weeks.

7 targeted promotions since they started this nonsense and not eligible for any of them. No bueno.

I received a promo for 1 Free Award Night for each of my next three stays between May 1 and July 31, for use before end of November.
I'm new to SPG (3 stays since December); can someone direct me to where I can get details about using the Free Award Nights? Specifically, I'd like to know if I need to pay fees or points to use them, as well as what the availability is like, especially for Asia/Pacific locations. Thanks!

Another promo I am not eligible for, yet another reason to book with other chains
